Lower School News – May 11th – May 17th, 2015

Field Day

Lower School Field Day will take place on Thursday, May 14. Students should arrive at the Cougar Sports Complex by 8AM and follow the signs for drop-off. Students will participate in a variety of fun-filled activities and organized team games throughout the day. If you pre-ordered a school lunch this will be served at the field. If you did not, please bring a completely disposable sack lunch. Students may also bring a small bag or cinch sack with a towel for their picnic lunch, extra water bottles labeled with their name and a hat or sunglasses. Students are responsible for keeping up with their items at all times. Students will be escorted back to main campus for a traditional pick-up. Please remember to apply sunscreen prior to reporting to the complex. We look forward to a wonderful day!

 

Playground Updates

The old playground equipment has been removed from the North Second playground and the groundwork prep has been completed. Progress on our new sand volleyball court is moving quickly. Coach Peterson and Coach Wallace have ordered the equipment and net supports so as soon as they arrive we will install. We look forward to having many great challenges and matches in the remaining weeks of this school year and in the years to come.

 

Ford Drive One for Your School

Calling all parents…we need your help! Next week on Wednesday, May 13 we will host the Ford Drive One for Your School event. This event will take place in our front parking lot from 9-1:30 PM. Parents, grandparents, friends, are invited to come by school and simply ride along in one of Ford’s new products. By doing this Ford will give $20 for each rider (only one per household/address). We will have a sign-up available for parents or student drivers who are over 18. We encourage you to take part in this great event. A sign up sheet is located here: https://docs.google.com/a/clarksvilleacademy.com/forms/d/1VD-xLiXxTJaKyS5yQdYmrqNidamtdJQnwWdxBqQ3eF8/viewform?c=0&w=1

The grade with the most participation will receive an end of the year ice cream party! (Each rider can only count for 1 grade…so ask friends and family to participate on behalf of multiple children!) Share this sign up sheet with grandparents, neighbors, your entire office staff, etc. We encourage as many as possible to come out and participate!

 

FUSE Social Studies

4th and 5th grade FUSE students visited The Hermitage this week. They had a great time learning more about our 7th president, Andrew Jackson. On their trip the students toured The Hermitage museum, mansion, and plantation. They also took part in the hands-on “I Spy the Past” history class!

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
